for the president's debate loss. is that a strong enough come back for you? >> well, good morning, stuart, i will tell you first of all, i think it's a very bad path for the obama administration to go down and also the democrat party. when you think about we still have a lot of questions unanswered about libya, when you have a president's administration that sends out a u.n. ambassador susan rice talking about a video, when you have a president that stands before the united nations, six times he referred to a video, never said anything about a terrorist attack. and we have the special forces lt. colonel that's come forward and we know now that security was denied 30 days out before that attack occurred. so, i don't think that they should be throwing around the word liar too often, but it's kind of like in a football game when you get taken out behind the wood shed and shellacked pretty bad, blaming the referees or blaming that the grass was too high or the other team cheated. you have to accept the fact that you got beat en. swacked, can you-- >> that's a sec football kind of word that you c

york times" story this morning which says, barak obama doesn't really like debating and he really didn't want to debate mitt romney who he views with disdain. this is an interesting thing because if he viewed romney with disdain, why wouldn't he want to debate him? obviously he could swat him like a fly. and at the views him with disdain, that's a very bad attitude to go into against somebody who before the debates, was maybe three points down from you. now today, gallup says the race is tied. the battle ground poll says that among very likely voters, romney is ahead 52-46. that's 85% of those polled in that poll was before the debate, before the debate. so we don't actually know what the results are of the debate fully. >> steve: more bounce to come. john, always a pleasure. >> thank you. >> steve: good writer. straight ahead, a major medical breakthrough. new plan to help stop cancer in its tracks and it's already working. we're going to tell you and talk to the doctor who is behind it after the break. >> pete: first let's check in with our pal, bill hemmer. what's going on at the to
